Paleontología del Chaco Oriental: Una nueva localidad con mamíferos fósiles pleistocenos en el río Bermejo (Formosa, Argentina)
The palustrian and loessic sediments of the late Pleistocene-early Holocene (ca. 130–8 ka) of Argentina contain and preserve one of the most important records of vertebrates (mainly mammals) of South
Mammals from the Salicas Formation (Late Miocene), la Rioja Province, Northwestern Argentina: Paleobiogeography, Age, and Paleoenvironment
Abstract. This study analyzes a collection of fossil mammals from the Salicas Formation in the El Degolladito area, La Rioja Province, Argentina. The materials reported herein were recovered from
First Record of Carnivora (Puma Lineage, Felidae) in the Uquía Formation (Late Pliocene–Early Pleistocene, NW Argentina) and Its Significance in the Great American Biotic Interchange
Abstract. The fossil record of the puma lineage in America is sparse, and doubts have been raised about the origin, radiation, and migration events of this lineage. In this study, we present results


Studies in Neotropical Paleobotany. XV. A Mio-Pliocene palynoflora from the Eastern Cordillera, Bolivia: implications for the uplift history of the Central Andes.
When the total uplift is corrected for probable amounts of erosionally driven isostatic rebound, the paleoelevation estimate suggests that from one-third to one-half of the uplift of the Eastern Cordillera had occurred by the beginning of the Pliocene, consistent with other paleoeLevation estimates from the Central Andes.
Magnetic Polarity Stratigraphy and 40K-40Ar Dating of Late Miocene and Early Pliocene Continental Deposits, Catamarca Province, NW Argentina
Magnetostratigraphic and $$^{40}K -^{40}Ar$$ data on a 2300 m thick sequence of continental sediments at Puerta de Corral Quemado in Catamarca Province, NW Argentina permit calibration of land mammal
Chronostratigraphy and “Land-Mammal Ages” in the Cenozoic of southern South America: principles, practices, and the “Uquian” problem
The concept of “land-mammal age” as developed in South America is examined. The “Uquian Land-mammal age” is used as a study case. “Land-mammal age” parataxonomy is here considered methodologically

Uplift history of the Central and Northern Andes: A review
The elevation of the Andean Cordillera is a crucial boundary condition for both climatic and tectonic studies. The Andes affect climate because they form the only barrier to atmospheric circulation
Middle Miocene climatic change in the Atacama desert
Geochronology and paleotopographic reconstruction of the porphyry-copper deposit at La Escondida, Chile, are used to calculate long-term erosion rates and to deduce the timing of Tertiary climatic
Geochronology of Type Uquian (Late Cenozoic) Land Mammal Age, Argentina
Mammal faunas collected from the Uqu�a Formation at Chucalezna and Esquina Blanca in Jujuy Province, northwest Argentina, are calibrated by potassium-argon age determinations and paleomagnetic polarity data to correspond in time to late Blancan and early Irvingtonian land mammal age fauna in North America.
